These sessions spawned from an offer by Andy March to record two songs for Zachary to be released on his new label Craft-Singles. The songs were recorded at the Silver Door in Montreal with the assistance of Christian Simmons. The tracks were recorded to tape through an 8 track. All tracks were done live off the floor. Much different than introspective bedroom styled Deliever Me From Nowhere... this cassette single features a full band and is a full example of Zachary's Black-Out-Fuzz-Wah worship. Devil's Rope Revisited is probably some of the craziest Fairbrother guitar work you'll ever hear.
The group is not the current Lantern line-up but a spontanius ensemble formed the afternoon of the session. The band features Andy March on drums and Alex Zhang Hungtai of Dirty Beaches fame, on bass. This session was recorded during the same time as Zachary was working on Deliver Me From Nowhere...
